Great photo! Just became my wallpaper in the office. (They already know I'm obsessed with my car, and it won't even be here till July!)

I had considered going with Arctic, but now after taking a good long look at
Sparkling Graphite

I think I know what my choice of color is going to be.

So with that said... Does anyone have some pics of SG with beige interior, so I can see both the inside and the outside? Maybe a shot of looking into the open door?

Decided to wash the car today, mainly to get off all the brake dust. Here's the result. Still love the color. So, to anyone considering it (vs. Space, which is boring cuz it just has different shades of gray), Sparkling Graphite is great. Don't worry about the eggplant; it only rarely rears its ugly head.



I set the digicam to "scene" mode and chose beach/snow since it was sunny for the same shot; it looks like the flash may have gone off.

Top down, high 70's today:

Just been through all 19 pages, can't wait till I get mine on 25th July.
no offence to those with black dakota, but in the demo car i had it looked "light-black" for want of a better phrase!, and didn't give the impression of quality. Liked the idea of Lemon for the contrast with SG, and the fact with Lemon you still get carpets, lower dash & trim etc in black.

the first E93 I test drove was SG with black dakota inside and I thought it was quite underwhelming. I have seen photos of it with the light gray inside and it looks better with some contrast. The car I drove had the little 328i standard 17s on it and they may have influenced my opinion on the looks.

I think the SG looks very nice on the sedans.

Three and a half years ago I was torn between TiAg and SG, obsessively studying these e90 Post color threads. I bought my friend's car so my 'choice' was made much easier, but it was worth the wait. Here's SG in its un-purple liquid-asphalt-y look today...
